You may have a point about emphasis on abstinence in LGO, but as for Jesse's leaving the hospital, it's my understanding that the show has (had - not been broadcast lately) an advisor who was, I think, into symptomatic AIDS and then somehow pulled back. There is a dreadful uncertainty about when the disease will take you and how much it will abuse you before it does. Jesse's cycling through better to worse to better, and so on, at least captures that. It's clear that Becca has wanted sex with Jesse but it's less clear that they haven't found some other "form of expression," genital or not. By the way does "Life Goes On" not go on anymore?
